of the world are watching to see what will happen next between israel and hamas. but for now, the rockets just keep flying. and it's civilians who are caught in the cross fire. hamas says ten members of the same family were killed during an israeli air strike in gaza, their house reduced to rubble. israel says it was targeting a top militant. on the other side of the border, air raids sounded in israel's largest city for the third time in as many days. but the rocket aim for tel aviv was intercepted. cnn's cedrick prankins was where air raid sirens went off. one sounded when i was on the air with cnn international anchor colleen mcedwards. here's what happened. >> reporter: the crews working on the ground and that seems to indeed be part of all of the rocket that has handed here. people here spend most of their days indoors -- there is another attack. there's another rocket alert going on right now. we've got to get out of here. >> okay, go, fred. there you see it, a strike in ashca lan, just a short time ago, we're seeing pictures there, we've got the pictures you up as fred and our camera cr

violence has escalated. yesterday, israel in response to a reported 1,000 rocket attacks from gaza, this year killed ma has leader jabari. in retaliation hamas fired over 270 rocket into israel killing three. israel responded by bombing suspected rocket launching sites as well as other suspected terrorist sites killing 16. israel has also begun moving troops toward the border and called up 30,000 reservists, muscle flexing to raise the specter of a ground invasion. president obama called benjamin netanyahu to pledge his support and morsi to assert israel's right to condemn itself and president morsi did not agree. saying today and i quote... >> eliot: to discuss the growing violence in gaza, i'm joined by our good friend, recently re-elected congressman jerry nadler of new york. sir, always a pleasure to have you on the show. >> good to be here. >> eliot: this is an escalation and a moment of tension that's unparalleled in recent years with one of the strikes, the missiles from gaza actually landing in a suburb of t
from gaza in towards israel trying to hit population centers. the iron dome then decided it was going to launch. if you see that flashing red light, that's where they go off from. it is this system that is the only thing protecting more than a million people from these rockets that rain down here. 200 have come down here in israel in about the 18 hours, and i can tell you when the air raid sirens start to go off, your adrenaline really starts to flow. megyn: understandable. and we wanted to get right to you because of the breaking news, but i want to give your viewers the background z to what's happening there. we've been so focused on the election here and the general petraeus issue and so on that we have not gotten to this important situation in israel. as, leland, there is a possible concern of a ground war escalating there not just involving hamas and israel, but perhaps the region. and just to bring you up-to-date, they've had close to 150 missiles fired today alone, we're told, sorry, rockets fired today alone. the locals there ordered by authorities to stay close to a network o
into southern israel in just the past 24 hours. palestinians all fired a long-range missile today that landed just 12 miles from tel aviv. in gaza today hundreds of palestinians attended the funeral of a hamas military chief who was killed yesterday in a targeted attack. the israeli government has claimed credit for this incident, even posted video of the air strike at the precise time that it went down. it took to twitter to warn other hamas leaders to not go above ground in the coming days. hamas responded by saying israel has, quote, opened the gates of hell. last night president obama spoke with prime minister netanyahu about the escalating violence st stressing israel has a right to defend itself and urging him to make every effort to avoid casualties. amin, we saw that air strike, and a lot of people believe that was the moment this all escalated. the escalation and we've seen ebbs and flows but about ten days ago is when we saw a significant turn perhaps. >> reporter: that's correct. there are two very competing narratives about what happened. from the israeli perspective they say they
this morning. it's changing by the minute out of israel. this morning israeli tv reporting three israelis were killed in rocket strikes in the southern part of the country. this comes as the israeli military has launched an aggressive new campaign to cripple hamas after repeated rocket attacks. as many as 750 this year, they say, launched from gaza into southern israel. last night president obama spoke on the phone with prime minister benjamin netanyahu acknowledging israel's right to defend itself but also urging him to not have civilian casualties. this youtube video showing an air strike yesterday killing the top military commander of hamas. it was part of a widespread campaign against targets that the israeli military says it will broaden in the coming days. this morning defense forces dropped leaflets over gaza warning residents to stay away from hamas operatives. on twitter, a clear message from israeli defense forces. quote, we recommend that no hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead. president obama also spoke last night w
and see. directly ahead, bernie goldberg on whether the american media being fair to israel in the latest conflict. glenn beck will drop by. he has a new book, those reports after these messages >> bill: some americans believe the media in general tilts against israel. i don't think so. but the left wing media, certainly does. >> what would you say to those who argue that the rockets are essentially very ineffective. they rarely do damage and that the response from the israelis is disproportional to the threat they're under? >> i would say that to the three israeli people killed by one of the rockets. the 150 israelis wounded physically and psychologically by this. these rockets paralyze an entire country. >> bill: new cnn poll says 57% of americans believe israel is justified in taking military action against hamas. 25% say it's not justified. 19% don't know. joining us from miami, bernie goldberg. so is israel getting a fair shake in general from the media here? >> well, there is too many news organizations for me to make a broad generalization. so let me say this: before israel's coun
-- perhaps israel -- would face. they've already tested their missiles to show what a retaliatory strike on tel aviv would be. these drills also have the intended consequence of raising the price a little bit. the iranians are saying, okay, it's going to cost more if you bomb us, therefore, if we come to the negotiating table, we want more. and this all has to be looked at in the prism, if you will, of u.s./israel relations after the elections here. the prime minister here in israel, prime minister netanyahu, and president obama have a very icy relationship. the prime minister all but endorsed governor romney in the past election, and there's been a lot of fear here that now a second term president obama will take a much tougher line against israel when it comes to iran, when it comes to the palestinians. there has been some vocal, hostile, very negative reaction here by israeli politicians to president obama's re-election, and there's a lot of anger at the prime minister for making israel and the united states' support of israel a partisan issue, a political issue during the presidentia
, israel. would you say in israel romney would be preferred to obama? >> it's not that simple. i think they're just as divided. it's absolutely true that the israeli right, i would say large chunk of the center fear president obama and therefore would support romney not because of enthusiasm but because of the very bad relationship between the israeli right and the israeli right-winged government and the obama administration. but i think the israeli center left now identifies with obama and would like to see an obama victory and actually that will influence the election campaign in israel. we have several players who are waiting to see the result of the american elections and therefore the israeli center left and definitely left actually supports obama, which was not the case when obama began his tenure because at the time, really most of israel had reservations about him. i would say he became much more popular with the left and left of center where the right sees him in almost in demonic terms. >> you have multiple identities. you're an arab-israeli. the second, you're a news anchor in it
the scenes to try to keep the conflict between israel and hamas from escalating. rockets and missiles are flying back and forth between gaza and israel with multiple deaths on both sides now. and right now there's fear this could become an all-out ground war. our senior international correspondent sara sidner is in gaza city for us right now. sara, what is the very latest on this extremely tense situation? >> reporter: we have just heard moments ago, wolf, another air strike, a huge boom and then a black plume of smoke. you can actually see that with your eyes even though it is very dark here now. as we're getting information in just right now from that latest air strike, we are hearing that there are several people who have been killed. perhaps several children. we're still looking into that right now. this is just one in a series of air strikes today that have been a barrage of blasts all day long followed by huge plumes of black smoke. but we have also seen dozens upon dozens of rockets leaving this area and areas all along the gaza strip into israel. i want to let you hear that. [
a nuclear weapon? the problem is it leaves israel out of the equation. even though the united states and iran and the obama administration might come to that kind of a deal. forget about the consequences that deal might have, israel isn't going to necessarily like that deal. and if israel perceives it's been isolated and it's on its own they may do something, preemptive strike against iran. while israel can start that war. it can't finish it. and that's why iran did what it did. it wanted to show the united states that whatever happens between israel and iran, don't realize -- don't forget the fact that the united states will be drawn into it, too. i think it was a warning shot from iran. shannon: the white house denied there are secret talks involving valley jarrod. they say it's absolutely not happening. this isn't the first time we heard a report along these lines. what is your sense? >> my sense is we probably are -- maybe not directly negotiating with iran. but there have been suggestions the united states and iran are looking into some kind of diplomacy. one of the first things
